Mazda Philippines has unveiled the latest iteration of its popular CX-5 crossover, introducing the 2024 model with a host of updates and additions tailored to meet the demands of discerning Filipino consumers. The newest offerings include the 2.0 Sport and 2.5 AWD Sport trims, joining the already formidable CX-5 2.5 AWD Turbo variant.

At the forefront of the 2024 CX-5’s aesthetic transformation is a striking three-dimensional grille, exuding a robust demeanor while retaining the brand’s signature elegance with its distinctive “floating look.” 

Complementing this focal point are sculpted front bumpers and sleek LED headlamp clusters, featuring advanced LED technologies to optimize visibility during night drives. The LED headlamps are equipped with auto-leveling and high-beam control for added convenience and safety.

On the side profile, the CX-5 boasts a streamlined silhouette, further accentuated in the AWD Turbo trim by color-keyed body claddings and 19-inch bright silver aluminum alloy wheels, enhancing both style and functionality.

Stepping inside the 2024 CX-5 reveals a meticulously crafted interior designed to prioritize comfort and driver-centric functionality. Soft-touch surfaces envelop passengers, while leather-clad seats adorned with contrast stitching exude sophistication. The top-tier variant offers Deep Red Nappa leather upholstery for a luxurious touch.

Adjustable seating configurations, including a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a six-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, ensure personalized comfort for occupants. 

Furthermore, the CX-5’s versatile 40:20:40 split-folding rear seats enable flexible cargo arrangements, complemented by a power tailgate and reversible cargo floor with waterproofing for added convenience.

The 2024 CX-5 comes equipped with cutting-edge technology to elevate the driving experience. A floating-type eight-inch LCD screen supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, seamlessly integrated with a 10-piece Bose sound system for immersive audio enjoyment. Additionally, a wireless charging pad facilitates convenient smartphone charging on the go.

Safety remains paramount, with standard features including six airbags, anti-lock braking, stability control, and Mazda’s i-Activsense advanced driver-assist suite. This comprehensive suite incorporates blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and driver attention alert systems to enhance safety on the road.

Under the hood, the 2024 CX-5 is powered by Mazda’s Skyactiv-G engine lineup, offering a choice between a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated variant delivering 153 horsepower, a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated version generating 187 horsepower, and a turbocharged 2.5-liter mill producing an impressive 249 horsepower.

All variants feature Mazda’s Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic gearbox, with all-wheel-drive available on select trims for enhanced traction and stability. The CX-5’s performance is further bolstered by an off-road traction assist system and engine idling stop technology for improved fuel efficiency.

Pricing for the 2024 Mazda CX-5 starts at Php 1,950,000 for the entry-level Sport 2.0 trim, rising to Php 2,430,000 for the top-spec AWD Turbo variant, offering consumers a range of options tailored to their preferences and budget.
